Frida and Self-Portraiture
Frida Kahlo created 150 works and 65 of them were self-portraits. All of the self-portraits in this collection were part of the Gelman collection that I mentioned yesterday and they were among Natasha Gelman's most prized possessions.
This one was painted in 1943 and shows Frida with monkeys who embrace her affectionately.
This one was painted in 1941 showing Frida with her hair up and wearing a gold and red dress.
This one was painted in 1937 and is called "Me and My Doll".
I'm so glad I returned to this exhibit before it leaves at the end of August. I'm equally happy that it was quiet enough to let me read all the information.
I have a new post on Sharon's Sojourns today. I'm visiting a place with spectacular views and art everywhere.
